Error enabling TLS from Management Agent

Richard Green 4 years ago in UNIFYBroker/Microsoft Identity Manager updated by anonymous 4 years ago 15

Hi Gents,

I'm configuring my IDB management agents, and I've noticed the following error being thrown when I try to enable TLS:

I have created a self signed cert and configured it within the interface.

For reference, I used the following command to create my cert:

New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Provider "Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider" -Subject "CN=Unify.IdentityBroker" -TextExtension @("{text}") -KeyUsage DigitalSignature -KeyAlgorithm RSA -KeyLength 2048 -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\LocalMachine\My" -NotAfter (Get-Date).AddYears(5)

Affected Versions:
Fixed by Version:


Under review

Please try Unify.IdentityBroker.FIMAdapter.dll and let me know how it goes.

Additional Info:

IDB v5.2.0 Revision #2

No errors are thrown in the IDB or Event Logs.

Gateway config is default:

Cert Config:

Weird - Curtis I got an email notification on your comment, but it's not showing here.

Confirming I do have the latest version of IDB for MIM installed -

Adam is that patch to go in the IDB directory or under fim extensions, or both...?

The patch need only go in the FIM Extensions directory.

Haha well got a new error from that one when trying to point the MA at the DLL:

There's also a really long stack trace in the event log which I can provide if required?

Yes please, txt file is fine if it's too long. Thanks.

The extensible extension returned an unsupported error.

The stack trace is:

"System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Synchronization Service\Extensions\Unify.IdentityBroker.FIMAdapter.dll' or one of its dependencies. Operation is not supported. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131515)

Please check if the file has zone identifier information (right click, unblock, apply).

Hah well I have no idea how you figured that out, but yes that worked.

First test of enabling TLS caused the MIM Client to hang. I traced the following error in the event log:

A fatal error occurred when attempting to access the TLS server credential private key. The error code returned from the cryptographic module is 0x8009030D. The internal error state is 10001.

A google of this error indicated a possible permissions issue (among other solutions).

I made the IDB account a local admin, and restarted the service.

Shortly after restart, the CPU pegged at 100%. No idea why, nothing particularly indicative in the log.

Restarted again (stable this time) and retried the TLS option. Indicative error this time:

I'll see I if I can sort this one :)

That's one we haven't seen come through before X509ChainStatusFlags.NotValidForUsage. I can't find any information on it unfortunately though.

We'll also look at making this configurable so that additional flags can be ignored.


Yep seems like it. 

This looks like a good page on this topic:


My cert has an Enhanced Key Usage of Client Authentication but not Server Authentication, that's likely what it's whinging about. 


For reference, the following command create's a usable cert with a 5 year expiry. The cert also needs to be installed in the Trusted Root Certification Authority store for it to work. 

This needs to be run as administrator.

New-SelfSignedCertificate -Type Custom -Provider "Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider" -Subject "CN=Unify.IdentityBroker" -TextExtension @("{text},") -CertStoreLocation "Cert:\LocalMachine\My" -NotAfter (Get-Date).AddYears(5)

Thanks Richard,

Would you mind adding this as a comment to relevant documentation page?
